Gospel musician Joe Mettle has let the world in on the marks on his face. According to him, those marks are no tribal marks as people have led themselves to believe.
Joe told Accra-based Radio station that those marks came from a fetish priestess his parents took him when he was young. According to him, he was suffering an ailment and after many wanderings, this said priestess claimed those marks would heal him.
“I have marks on my face not because of my tribe. It was because I was always sick as a child and, trying to find a solution, my parents took me to a fetish priestess who thought to mark my face would cure me.”
He adds that he is thankful to the Lord for saving him through it all. “I am most grateful for my life. God spared me though the sickness and kept my mind intact. Just for being alive, I’m grateful.” he said.
